Ever been to the supermarket and realised when you got there you’d forgotten your dollar coin to access the trollies?

Well never fear! A man in Scotland has revealed his trick for getting around it and people everywhere are loving it.

Joe Heenan was at his local grocery store when he realised he didn’t have any change for the trolley. He did have a a packet of milk chocolate button with him though and decided to see if one of the little buttons would work instead of a coin.

He filmed the moment on his phone so that he would have proof if it worked.

When it did, the delighted man uploaded the video to social media where it quickly went viral with people saying they would try the same thing.

Sharing the video on his Twitter account, he write: “Couldn’t find a pound coin for the trolley so I used a Milky Bar Button instead. I’m a genius.”

The video has since been shared and liked thousands of times, with many people saying that he is indeed a “genius”.

Obviously the only conundrum with this trick is that you have to have a chocolate button with you at the time.

Many people commenting on the post though said they often had a packet in the house to use for cooking and would take a few with them next time they had to do the shopping just so they could try out the trick.

Of course some people commenting on the video weren’t impressed, saying it was effectively stealing from the supermarket.

Others were more forgiving though, with one commenter saying: “I think the supermarkets make enough money of us as it is. I’m all for a little win like this for the shopper!”

Take a look at the trolley hack and tell us if you would give it a go.

Would you try this supermarket trolley trick? Or, do you think it is stealing from the supermarket?
